|A Wonderful Time!

Matt and I had a wonderful time at the Celebration Arts & Crafts fair! It was all over downtown Celebration, directly in front of our apartment even. As soon as we were downstairs we were in the midst of it! Sometimes I can't get over what a cool place I have here =)|
For you KC folks, I would liken it to the Plaza Art Fair. The Celebration one was honestly about half as big as the KC one, which is crazy considering how much smaller a town we have here - it was packed! All of our restaurants here had booths, we got some cookies from Barnies =)
I was expecting a typical kitschy-country-craftsy kinda thing, but no! Well, maybe a couple of booths, hehe. The rest of it was really cool! Lots of new age/hippie/craftsman type stuff, very nice. I bought a GORGEOUS dress - maybe I'll take a photo of it. It is kind of broomstick-skirty, but all shades of green, with tie-dye and a medieval style bodice front. It has an exaggerated pixie-hem, and it is just so Faery! I had to get it =) We also bought a TON of hand-dipped incense that smells so good - I've got some burning right now.
I am DEFINITELY going to get a booth next year - there were tons of artists, and even some fantasy art. There were some really cool big hand-carved Tiki gods that I liked too....
Lots of Celebration residents had booths, which I liked. It always kinda pissed me off back in KC how the Plaza Art Fair was 99% imported artists from California or New York, lol.
Alas, Matt had to go to work, so we didn't have too much time. It was a lot of fun though =) Now I'm going to paint! I'm going to hold off listing any of my paintings until tomorrow evening, so I can list a batch at once! You can watch me here! You can listen to what I'm listening to (Strangeling Radio!) here!.
